I know a potter who fires horsehair pottery to 1735 F, shuts off kiln, lets it cool to about 1100 F and removes pieces. Is this hard on the elements?

Removing the ceramic pieces at 1100 degrees F should not harm the elements or firebricks. Heat treating kilns are routinely opened at high temperatures to remove steel parts. This does not seem to affect element life. Our main concern would be operator safety. Please wear heat-protective gear.
